April 2020

Dear Westview Family and Friends,

We are living in a very strange and troubling time. Anxieties are high, people are worried, and we are unsure what to do. God tells us not to worry. We need to remember that God is in control and set our sights on what we can do to love God and love our neighbors. Right now loving our neighbor looks different for people in various positions. Doctors, nurses, and medical workers are working very hard to treat sick folks and that is their love. For most of us our way of showing love is to keep a social distance from each other so that we do not spread the virus to those most vulnerable to complications.

With this in mind, Bishop Bill McAlily has asked us to not have in person worship through the end of April. This has broken my heart as I truly enjoy seeing you all in worship and believe that we are better together. We have had virtual worship online for the past several weeks and are working on ways for more people to see the services. Currently if you do not have internet you need to call 312-626-6799 and when prompted enter 964764271.

I am praying for each of you. If you have specific prayer concerns please feel free to email me at pastor@westviewumc.org or call 615-799-0250 and leave a message.

Blessings,

Pastor Tom
